quickymart: Bit the bullet and bought my own copy today. Toying with whether to try installing on my laptop, or waiting until I get home to my desktop PC to install...hmm...


Whichever is more powerful with the bigger screen.

Can you not do both?  I don't own the game and haven't extensively reseearched the DRM measures, but given that all user data is stored on their servers (please correct me if I'm wrong) and you have to be connected to play is it possible that they may check that only one 'instance' of a licence key (or whatever other unique identifier is in use) is active at any one time.  Thta way you can install on mulitple devices, but only play on one at a time.

The desktop is far more powerful and has a bigger screen. I did think about installing it on the laptop and then uninstalling/reinstalling on the desktop, but can't find a 100% definitive answer as to whether this is permitted. I have a feeling it's one licence = one machine, ie, no transfers.

Last on was Oceanic 2 as well. But I haven't create or done any Public region yet... I reckon we should do a Private region.
